    Question Do you keep the box?

    When you buy a new fragrance, do you keep the box?

    For me the bottle is incomplete without the box. I prefer the retail box but if i buy a tester i ensure it comes with a box.
    I don't even strip the entire cellophane off a new box, i just cut the top portion of the cellophane that covers the flap thats enough for me to take out the bottle and let the remaining cellophane sticking on the box. Wierd? But thats the way i like it. Keeps my perfume boxes looking like new.

    Ofcourse i also keep all my bottles, boxed.

    Bottle out of box and into a refrigerator @ 55F. Box ends opened and box flattened and stored in another, larger box.

    Me, I always keep my fragrances in the boxes (no bath, no refrigerator, no light and heat). Just in my wardrobe. Or did you see a refrigerator in the Creed Store (Paris)? You keep your wine also in a cellar.

    I fond that if I keep botle in the box, sometimes I don't want to bother to open the box and use the frag, so I keep bottles separately in a dark cool place. Just this month I decided that I had too many boxes in that same shelf, so I took them out and put in a bag. Now I can't decide where to put this bag.

    Also, I can't decide what to do with empty bottles. I hate to throw them away, but I can't think of a place where to store them. I can imagine a nice glass table in the bathroom with few bottles n it, but I don't have space for that.

    So many questions to thik about.

    No. Life is too short to obsess about the box. I flatten it down and then toss it into the recycle box!

    I keep the box in case I decide later to sell the fragrance

    I keep my fragrances on my dresser (the ones I am using), love to see the classy looking bottles...

    I never keep the box. Guess I"m in the minority, huh...

    I have all the boxes and it's a bitch trying to find the right one if you store them with the bottoms only showing (I know... I just figured it out to} trying to match them up again to re-gift them.

    I also saved every cigar band I ever smoked until there was Floyd! Hurricane Floyd!@!! 5 feet of water in my best room in NJ!@#@#@!

    Folks: that is not supposed to happen

    Hadn't thunk of that. I may have to try that since i have a dresser drawer full of empty boxes that I just can't bring myself to toss. I mainly keep them in case I want to sell the bottle later.

    I keep a few boxed backups in my frag fridg along with my unboxed primary wardrobe.

    Coincidence! I am moving so I threw out over 50 boxes this A.M.

    Mostly - I store them in their boxes. I had to throw out the box for my Angel extrait, though, because it was enormous! It had a velveteen cylindrical box inside the cardboard packaging so I kept that part and recycled the rest.

    I always keep the box as most of my blind buys end up on Ebay

    Default Re: Do you keep the box?

    I recycle my boxes. True, keeping the bottles in the boxes would make it easier for me to store the fragrances, but it's a lot easier to just grab and use. Plus, I kind of like the clinking of the bottles when I reach into the larger box where all my bottles are stored

    I ditch the box. My thoughts are that together the juice and the bottle are the particular art form that I am collecting. The box is superfluous marketing material, not a part of the art form itself. If the box were part of the work of art that a fragrance is, there would be more discussion here about its aesthetic quality, in addition to that of the beauty of the juice and bottle. (Of course, the box may be important for other purposes for some - e.g. resale or storage - but it has not been for me.)

    I keep them in case I ever should want to sell. So I keep them stored away and I do not collapse them or anything. The bottles go in a thermoelectic wine cooler in the bedroom.

    I used to throw them away but now I keep them and I have shopping bags and boxes full of boxes on the top shelf of my closet. I have about half my collection's boxes - the others were discarded so I'd say I have about 80 boxes stored. The bottles are on the dresser in my bedroom and it is always cool in there and the curtains are always drawn. No light, no heat, no worry. No need for deep refrigeration here.

    My bottes are in a curio cabinet ... the boxes are shoved underneath the bathroom sink. I haven't always saved them, though.

    As a general rule no, but I kept the tin for Versace Black Jeans and I kept the inner box for Pontaccio 21.

    Default Re: Do you keep the box?

    I like to store the bottles that I only use on occassion in the original box to keep them away from light. But I keep frags that I use often (work scent) out of the box sitting on the shelf. It makes it easier to access them when I'm in a rush to get out of the house.

    I always keep the boxes and keep the bottles in them, too.
